Megan Kavanagh speaks to Jarlath Stevenson about the art of mixology and what goes into making a great cocktail.
Over the years, the rise of the speakeasy’s popularity has drawn great attention to the way drinks are made. Which brings us to mixology.
The word speakeasy was first coined in the US during the Prohibition era, when the sale of alcohol was generally illegal from 1920 to 1933 and is the place you’re most likely to meet a mixologist.
Mixology is a term used to describe the art of mixing cocktail drink recipes.
Being a mixologist isn’t quite like being a bartender but according to Mr Stevenson the secret to being successful is to be an all rounder behind the bar.
